Chocolate shop expands to Church Hill
RICHMOND, Va. (RichmondBizSense.com) – A fifth-generation chocolatier has found a sweet spot for her second Richmond location. Kelly Walker, owner of Chocolates by Kelly, plans to open a new storefront at 600 N. 29th St. in Church Hill.
Walker, who opened her first chocolate shop in 2008 in Forest Hill, signed a one-year-lease for the 700-square-foot Church Hill space in February. She has $10,000 of her personal savings budgeted to open in the spring.
“Church Hill has a lot of food lovers and that’s who we’re making chocolate for,” Walker said.
